Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Jane is trying to run over John with her car, she jumps from the driver's seat while John is in the back of the car. Right before the car crashes through the fence, you see John through the back window. You also see a head in the driver's seat, even though no one is supposed to be driving the car.

Revealing mistake: When Jane catches the wine bottle that John drops, you can see her holding a second bottle in her hand before he drops his.

Suggested correction: You can assume that's how they filmed it, but nothing seen in that shot suggests that there were two bottles, since Jane's arm is never even in the frame before John drops the bottle.


Revealing mistake: When Pitt is on the roof of Jolie's car, he breaks the window in order to get into the car. First off, when played in slow motion, the feet never do touch the glass before it explodes. Second, all newer vehicles have shatter proof glass both on the windshield and the side windows. In real life the glass would have just cracked, not blown out as it did in the film. (00:46:25)


Revealing mistake: While John drives the minivan, there's a closeup of the rearview mirror's reflection as he spots the first BMW tailing them, but the problem is the view we see within the mirror is not backwards, even though it should be.

Revealing mistake: While Jane drives the minivan, after John tells her that he knew he saw her "father" on Fantasy Island, there's a closeup of the rearview mirror's reflection just as Jane sees the two BMWs still chasing them, but the view we see within the mirror's reflection is not backwards.

Factual error: The movie is supposed to take place in and around New York City, however during the car chase where Angelina and Brad are fighting off the three BMW's, a wide shot clearly shows a street sign announcing Los Angeles.

Trivia: When John and Jane are questioning their former apparent target near the end of the film, look carefully at the guy's shirt - it's the logo from another Brad Pitt film, Fight Club.
